Membership is exclusive and places are limited, that way your dog has playmates that are screened, safe and fun. This ensures your dog gets the best out of daycare and is not exposed to any negative or unpleasant situations.

Your Peace of Mind
flying houndWe have created a balanced approach to dog daycare that ensures your peace of mind while your pet enjoys optimal levels of play and socializing. Because dogs do not naturally play or socialize for 8 hours a day, forcing your pet into playgroups for lengthy periods can be both stressful and physically challenging. It is essential that your dog has a private space and quiet time during the day between play sessions.

Our Daycare Program, designed by Niki Tudge & Angelica Steinker, limits the number of participants and matches dogs based on age, physical activity and personality traits. Our resort dog playgroup sizes are a maximum of eight to ensure we can effectively supervise your dog’s play and guarantee all dog interactions remain polite and stress free while giving them many opportunities to interact safely with their canine buddies.


Fun For Your Dog
We encourage happy wagging tails, cold noses and playful barks. Belly scratches, ear kisses and chew toys are all on the agenda too. We do not object to dog drooling and shedding either! Our Pet Care Technicians are trained in canine behavior and communication and we practice polite daycare obedience skills. Your dog will be continually reinforced for all appropriate behaviors, such as no jumping, appropriate barking and polite canine greetings and we only use positive dog handling of dogs

Some dogs in daycare enjoy sniffing, barking, chasing and general canine dog-foolery! Other dogs simply prefer the contact and company of humans while their owner is at work. We will gear your dog’s daycare experience around its needs. At Courteous Canine dog daycare each guest receives its own private space for eating, sleeping, lounging or some good old-fashion dog-watching!
